I still say that the chupacabras of Brazil doesn't resemble a canid; it's closer to what the Puertoriquenos described: bipodal with short arms, a mane or spikes running down the spine, and large eyes.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

ahhhhh that gives hope, the Myth lives on :kitty: But one thing I frankly do not understand, yet, is how come humans are yet to find the truth about this animal?

Is there a connection among the various small, vicious, flying monsters that have terrorized unsuspecting people around the globe for decades?

Lol yeah I was married to one :P. Sucked the life outta me lol. Ok back to reality now no experience I'm to far north but I do believe that they could exist there is soooo much of the world that people have never been to. And ALL myths are based off of real things at one point and time.

I recently read that the Chupacabra may be an animal experiment that got loose from a laboratory. They look like a hairless coyote but with some horrific fangs. There are a lot of videos on the internet.

In the interest of cultural diversity I will treat this topic a bit more seriously than I have previously.

I truly doubt the elaborate claims for this "creature". Is the Chupacabra some unknown cryptid? Now, absolutely not. Why? Because I can find no record of it earlier than about 20 years if that. Also, it seems to be a sort of gargoyle composed of characteristics particular to distinct and almost unrelated animal groups. It most closely resembles the Jersey Devil!

Is there ANY reality to this phenomena? Some of the dead animals are odd. They resemble victims of mange, but not exactly. "Death is a great disguiser" to be sure, but I do not rule out that there may be some other disease involved. So, a coyote with a mystery ailment? That's as far as I'm going with this one.
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
This much let me avow---
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream:
Yet if hope has flown away In a night,
Or in a day, In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

Those mangy canines don't resemble the Chupacabras as believed by Brazilians.

That doesn't bother me especially as no two people groups can agree on just what they do look like.
My specialty is not animal biology but Anthropology does require a fair degree of knowledge concerning characteristics of the animal families.

Basd upon this the Chupacabra is an "impossible" animal. Impossible in the sense that a Centaur or Minotaur would be. That doesn't mean that these haven't been seen by people, but those sightings were either hallucinatory or overlap from another reality.

People who want to claim that these are real animals belonging to the known branches of the animal kingdom simply have to give up the flip-book combinations. Remember flip-books? Each page is cut into three or four sections which turn seperately, so you can have a picture of a Kangaroo, or a kanga's head on hippo body with chicken feet. I mean, points for imagination, but...!!
